I am an introspective, honest, authentic, and ethical man. I try to live the best life I can. I try to be nice and open and honest with everyone I meet. I abhor dishonesty...mainly because I can't live with the smallest of lies (I feel like "The Tale-Tell heart"). I think that life might be easier than most people make it out to be, if we can just be honest with ourselves (and those with whom we interact) about our desires. I think challenges are fun. I think life is worth living artfully.

Forgetting important practical matters.
Remembering ridiculous theoretical matters.
The gap between my front teeth.
Movies: You know, I haven’t watched a movie in a long time. Not out of malice or anything. We’ve just been watching all the new cable shows as they become available on DVD: the Wire, Battlestar Galactica, Generation Kill, Mad Men, Six Feet Under, Deadwood, The Shield, 24, Firefly, The Sopranos, Oz, The Tudors, etc.
Music. Ok, so my life is made up by music so this answer could be long. I use music for many different purposes and each requires something different. When I’m deeply listening to the music I like classical music (Wagner, Beethoven, Kronos Quartet) or avant noise-jazz (John Zorn), noisy synth stuff (Autechre, Boards of Canada), or noisy guitar stuff (Sonic Youth, Marc Ribot). When I’m thinking about song-writing, I like Willie Nelson, Cole Porter, the Beatles, solo John Lennon, the Smiths, David Byrne, Tori Amos, CCR. When other people are around, I tend towards the stuff I grew up on: the Pixies, Jane’s Addiction, Fugazi, NIN, TKK, the Beatles. I spend a lot of time listening to whatever record I’m working on at any given time. And I have this running soundtrack in my mind that is usually a combination of whatever I’m writing, a record I’m mixing, and whatever musical I’m working on. Today it’s “Luck Be A Lady Tonight.”
Food: I’m vegetarian, leaning toward vegan. I like good food, preferably fresh food. I like to eat food…I don’t really like to cook. I can, and will…it just takes away some of the pleasure of eating the food. I tend to have a perfunctory relationship with food. I eat good, healthy food that fills me up and then I don’t eat again until I’m starving.
